Around 6pm things got all Thunderbolt&LightningVeryVeryFrightning, but after a bit Donar wandered off east, no doubt looking for some comely Jotun maiden to impress.

Just heard on the local NPR that the public library a couple towns over is doing a series of lectures on Norse mythology (their words, not mine) once a week until the end of July.  Each lecture is self contained.  I would give quite a bit to be able to attend just one, nevermind all of them.


Putting my helmet on now...

good thinking

My buddy who lives about 3 miles from me probably won’t have power until the weekend and I just got word I may be activated - our local counties are all in a state of emergency. No school today either and my other buddy’s dumb wife may have driven in to an actual tornado as I mentioned above. She’s still a dummy, btw.

Why are they dummies? I find this fascinating. Does this mean your buddies are meatheads too?

Jeebus. We had a few showers here. Nothing even close to what you got.

Just for clarity my buddy’s wife is the dummy. Tall, statuesque blonde who thinks she is a militant feminist by being contrary all the time and putting black nail polish on her toes. Know what I’m saying? So I was a little doubtful when we heard her phone call yesterday afternoon that she was driving through ‘trees going sideways.’ Looks like it was true, though.

see if anyone is making them available on video to watch?

Four killed in the NE storms yesterday

Connecticut officials said two people in New Fairfield and Danbury were killed Tuesday in separate accidents when trees fell on their trucks, including a woman whose 3-year-old child escaped injury. In New York, falling trees in Newburgh claimed the lives of an 11-year-old girl in a parked car and a woman who was driving.
